Skjeldal following his 6th place in Holmenkollen:
Kristen Skjeldal was the best Norwegian with his 6th place in the 50-kilometer freestyle individual start in Saturday’s World Cup race in Holmenkollen (Oslo), Norway. Skjeldal was left out of the National team this season.
He was skiing as fast as the two fastest, Sommerfeldt and Valbusa in several sections of the course. [Norway's] best distance skater is of the opinion that Norwegians need to show more guts and rawness in skating. He wants help from the Biathlon skiers to make that improvement.
